Sen. Lewis has filed the following bill to address transportation issues:
- An Act to Explore Alternative Funding Sources to Ensure Safe and Reliable Transportation: This bill would create a voluntary vehicle miles traveled pilot program to evaluate ways to protect data collected, ensure privacy, and vary pricing based on time of driving, type of road, proximity to transit, participation in carpooling, income of the driver, and vehicle fuel.
- An Act to Promote the Safe Integration of Autonomous Vehicles into the Transportation System of the Commonwealth: This bill would create a regulatory framework to foster innovation and safety for self-driving cars, require that these vehicles be zero emission (electric), implement a road usage pricing structure to replace lost gas tax revenues, and prevent “zombie” cars.
- An Act to Protect Motorists from Excessive EZ-Pass Fees and Fines: This bill would require the Department of Transportation (MassDOT) to regularly review EZ-Pass account balances and make every effort to contact those account holders who have accrued fees and fines exceeding $100.
